Siemens’ Additive Manufacturing Network – A System Walk-through

By Ashley Eckhoff

Digitization acts as a transformative force on companies to invest into future business models. The Siemens Additive Manufacturing Network (short: AM Network) provides the digital foundation for companies to get fast access into the world of additive manufacturing, as well as to explore and scale new business opportunities in the field of 3D printing.

The AM Network is a digital, cloud-based collaboration platform that maps the value chain of additive manufacturing in an automated manner – from first customer contact throughout the order creation to a comprehensive order management all the way down to production planning and finally controlling-conform reporting and shipping of the successfully produced AM parts. This way, the AM Network offers a joint place for collaboration where both, AM parts buyers and consumers as well as AM parts manufacturers and service providers can work together interactively and system-supported over the entire process flow.

  • Are you part of a mid- to large-sized enterprise and want to learn how the AM Network can help your R&D designers and engineers to effectively qualify their 3D designs for AM production and how the AM Network can enable your organization to order 3D prints fast and with the best lead time and price?
  • Are you an AM part manufacturer and/or service bureau and want to learn how the AM Network’s order management and production planning modules can help you to streamline your shop operations, increase your productivity and offer the best customer service?

Please watch the video to see a quick and comprehensive journey through the entire AM order-to-delivery workflow. Get a first impression and a nice feel for how the system could work for you. For more information, please visit our AM Network website or just contact us directly. We look forward to helping you maximize the ROI for your AM operation.
